Tech Companies Praise The President For Speaking Out In Favor Of Net Neutrality | TechCrunch.

President Barack Obama spoke in favor of net neutrality this week. Finally.

One of the issues around net neutrality is whether you are creating different rates or charges for different content providers. That’s the big controversy here. So you have big, wealthy media companies who might be willing to pay more and also charge more for spectrum, more bandwidth on the Internet so they can stream movies faster.

I personally, the position of my administration, as well as a lot of the companies here, is that you don’t want to start getting a differentiation in how accessible the Internet is to different users. You want to leave it open so the next Google and the next Facebook can succeed.

That’s correct. Bravo Mr. President.
